I am a Comprehensively Certified Balanced Body Pilates Instructor. I never thought this would be my job, as I originally studied to be a Genetic Counselor. I always knew I wanted a job that connected me with people on a deeper level; to help them grow and love themselves. Teaching Pilates has given me that ability to connect with so many people of different paths and aid the world through movement.
Pilates and movement in general has always been a vital part of my life. Growing up in a health club certainly has its perks, such as early exposure to fitness modalities like Pilates and Yoga. When I was about 12 years old, I began training 1on1 on the Pilates Reformer to condition myself and prevent injuries for my competitive softball pitching career. Pilates made me strong in ways my weight lifting couldn’t, and I still attribute it to keeping me from rotator cuff surgery. Most recently, I have used Pilates to prepare and recover from an emergency c-section delivery with my son. No matter your background, Pilates can help to sustain your body. Whether you’re training for a marathon or just need to be able to move without pain in your day to day life, Pilates can help. That’s the true beauty of this fitness modality. It really can be catered to every body, for any purpose.
I began my teaching journey in 2016 at my Dad’s boutique Personal Training club, Metro Fitness. Soon after becoming certified for Pilates Mat and Reformer, my husband and I decided to uproot from our hometown of Syracuse NY and see what Colorado had in store. I finished my comprehensive training while in CO and worked for several amazing studios around the Denver Metro area. Colorado was a necessary chapter in my book to learn and grow in myself and my Pilates career. The pandemic brought us back home to Syracuse, NY a little sooner than anticipated, but now I’m excited to bring my expertise and experience of teaching movement back to the space my journey began. I recently launched my own Pilates Studio within Metro Fitness Club, with the help of 2 other wonderful instructors. Our studio is limited to 4 in a class for personalized attention and we are also available for 1on1 and small group private lessons. Check out the link to our studio page to see more!
